Narukami Battle Strategies

Mulligan (Starting Cards)

   - Any Grade 1 Card (G1) = Keep x1 or x2, to ensure a Grade 1 Vanguard and to avoid riding Rising Phoenix (G1).
   - Any Grade 2 Card (G2) = Keep x1 or x2, to ensure a Grade 2 Vanguard.
   - Dragonic Kaiser Vermillion (G3) = Keep x1 (top priority!) to ensure a Grade 3 Vanguard.

   - Dragonic Kaiser Vermillion "THE BLOOD" (G3) = Keep x1 (optional), if you didn't get Dragonic Kasier Vermillion (G3).
   - Wyvern Guard, Guld (G1) = Keep at least x1.

Basic Battle Strategies

   - Your aim for this build is to deal 4 or 5 damage, then end the battle with your "Vermillion's" Limit Break skills.

   - Place Desert Gunner, Shiden (G2) and/or Desert Gunner, Raien (G1) to disable your opponent's Grade 2 Intercept ability. Useful to help you land more Damage (rear-guard can attack first before your Vanguard for example) or end the battle.
   - Use them as well when using Djinn of the Lightning Flash (G3), to open up a clear path to the Vanguard since it can't attack rear guards.

   - TIP: Try to limit Djinn of the Lightning Flash (G3) to 1 in play, especially when your opponent can place 2 Intercepts, to avoid mistakes, unless you can disable or retire at least 1 of their 2 Intercepts. This is also where you can use your "Vermillion's" Limit Break skills.

   - Dragonic Kaiser Vermillion (G3) is still your main Vanguard, Cross Riding is optional depending on the situation, because of "THE BLOOD's" (G3) Limit Break activation requirements (check more info below).

   - In case of a miss-ride, you can ride straight to Dragonic Kaiser Vermillion "THE BLOOD" (G3) especially if you are up against rushers, best with self damaging cards to help activate it's Limit Break skill.
   - Switch between your 2 main Vanguards depending on the situation and available CBs.

How To Use Dragonic Kaiser Vermillion (G3)

Vermillion G3
   - (VC): 11,000 base Power that can reach 14,000 Power when attacking a Vanguard, so you just need a 7,000~8,000 Booster to reach 21,000~22,000 Power.
   - (VC): LB4 (when you have 4 or more Damage in your Damage Zone), CB2 to get +2,000 Power and a skill that can battle all front row units in 1 attack!

   - This is really useful for clearing Intercept cards, especially when your opponent isn't paying attention to your Damage Zone and CB usage. Some players would sometimes deny you Damage, so try to pressure them by reserving 2 CBs (reserve 1 CB at 3 Damage), while dealing more Damages.

   - Consider using Dragonic Kaiser Vermillion's (G3) skill when your opponent got 5 Damage to clear Intercepts and start breaking Sentinel Cards (PG), best if you can setup 3 attacks here.
   - If your opponent can't do Intercepts, you can use this unit as your last attacker, to use skill to clear their Grade 3 cards, especially when your opponent got very few cards in hand.

How To Use Dragonic Kaiser Vermillion "THE BLOOD" (G3)

Dragonic Kaiser Vermillion "THE BLOOD" (G3)
   - (VC): LB5, CB3 to get +5,000 Power/Critical+1 and the following ability until end of turn. "(VC): This unit battles every unit in your opponent's front row in 1 attack."
   - Similar to Dragonic Kaiser Vermillion's (G3) skill but with higher requirements, consider using if you want to utilize it's 13,000 Cross Ride numbers, want to rush the battle or catch up on damage using it's Critical attacks.
   - Best with Garuda (G2) and Heal Triggers to help recover CBs.

   - (VC): Cross Ride If Dragonic Kaiser Vermillion (G3) is in your Soul, this unit gets +2,000 Power.
   - (VC): If this unit is Cross Riding, its LB5 becomes LB4.
   - A 13,000 base Power Vanguard would force your opponent to adjust their combos to 13k/18k/23k.
